Major U.S. Retailers Tighten Rules on Gun Sales to Teens

Gun control is a complicated issue in the United States. It’s illegal to sell firearms to anyone under the age of 18 or to anyone who has a criminal record, mental disability, or dishonorable military discharge. However, none of these restrictions are foolproof in preventing gun violence. Last week, several major retailers agreed to restrict the sale of assault-style weapons and raise the age limit for any gun purchase to 21. While some Americans believe that gun control doesn’t help in reducing crime or gun violence, many others are supporting the student activists who are calling for stronger gun laws.
